Yoga Pro are among the latest successful organisations announced for Tweed under the NSW Government’s Children and Young People Wellbeing Recovery initiative.

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest MP said the projects will help support recovery and boost resilience for young people in the region following the impacts of natural disasters and COVID-19.

“I’m thrilled to announce support for these projects that will help young people in our community bounce back stronger than ever in the wake of COVID-19 disruptions and natural disasters,” Mr Provest said.

“Projects like the Mental Health and Wellbeing Program for Kindergarten to Year 2 being delivered by Yoga Pro at Banora Point Primary School is a great example of how we can help our youngsters recover, build resilience and improve wellbeing”

From storytelling and themes to help children identify their emotions to game-based yoga postures to foster wellbeing and early awareness of self-regulation, this program will provide students with the tools and resources they need to become the best version of themselves, “said Mr Provest.

Minister for Regional Youth Ben Franklin said the $10.3 million Children and Young People Wellbeing Recovery Initiative offers large grants between $10,000 and $50,000 and small grants for up to $10,000.

“The large grants fund projects such as community events, peer support groups, cultural connection or partnership programs, while small grants are to enable initiatives like sporting programs and barbecues,” Mr Franklin said.

“Our Regional Youth Community Coordinators will help connect young people with the projects that best support their wellbeing and recovery and foster resilience and connection.”

The Children and Young People Wellbeing Recovery Initiative is funded through the NSW COVID-19 Economic Recovery Initiative and the co-funded NSW and Australian Governments’ Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.

Eligible applicants are encouraged to apply for funding for wellbeing programs, events and resources as part of the initiative.

Applications for both large and smaller grants are open now and close on 31 December 2022, or when fully allocated.
